    Hi ILites,
    I'm moving to Charlotte, NC end of month.
    Both I and my husband has to work in the downtown and I have 2 kids 4yrs and 6yrs.
    I'm looking for a good school district and a community with more Indian families.
    Some of my colleagues suggest South side, particularly Ballantyne rather than north side..
    I believe south side is preferred more for the schools .... Safety wise, though ppl suggest south side, north side colleagues say they don't feel any insecurity...
    So, coming to apartments, I've so far got some names on both side...
    N Side: Autumn Park , Vinoy and Century Highland Creek apartments
    S. Side: Cheswick...

    Please enlighten me with your thoughts on whether to go for N or S. side with couple of good apartment names ...

    Hi Ramya,
    I also heard about autumn park apartment which has "Nathaniel Alexander Elementary" as the assigned school with rating 7/10. Since, park side elementary is not rated in greatschool.org yet, can you tell me if you know of that apartment and school and if yes, which f the two schools would you recommend?

    Hi Ramya,
    We are planning to move to charlotte in August. I'm looking to rent a place that is close to concord mills mall with decent indian community and a place where there are lot of kids. I have 5 year old.
    Since you stay at highland creek, can please you tell me more about that apartment? I don't see any dedicated play area for kids in that apartment. Do they come out & play in the evening? Also please let me know if you have any information about other rental places in north charlotte.
    Thanks
    Mythilimurali

    Hi Mythili,
    Welcome to Charlotte.Im at Century apt ,play area is there. U can check on century apt website gallery.yes evening time kids will come out and play.As I'm staying here I can say about this apt. Century apt home school is Parkside elementary.Tradition apt don't have good ratings school. That apt has so many Indians.

    Bexley village luxury apt is near to concord mills blvd. But check the school allocated to that apt.

    Regards,
    Ramya
